The 24-70mm f/2.8 zoom lens is the workhorse of choice for a wide range of photographers and videographers, offering a lot of versatility for different situations. Tamron’s 28-75mm f/2.8 Di III RXD lens offers that versatility at a very affordable price and portable footprint. How does it hold up in practice? This great video review takes a look at what you can expect.
Coming to you from Wes Perry, this awesome video review takes a look at the Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 Di III RXD lens. Personally, the 28-75mm f/2.8 is one of my favorite lenses. The 28-75mm f/2.8 features one XLD (extra-low dispersion and one LD (low dispersion) element for reduced aberrations, two hybrid aspherical elements and one molded glass aspherical element for reduced distortion and increased sharpness, BBAR (Broad-Band Anti-Reflection) coating for reduced flares and ghosting and increased contrast, a minimum focusing distance of just 7.5 inches (making for a very workable 1:2.9 maximum magnification), full-time manual override, moisture-resistant design, and a rounded nine-blade diaphragm for smoother bokeh. Altogether, it is a great lens with a very light and portable design, all combined with a very affordable price. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Perry.
